Payday FreeCell

Start with the Ace
Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence

The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

It's random..

However, if you are working on something that needs some good scratches, keep hitting new game until you have a set up that both looks good to you, and has a scratch card right at the bottom. Scratch it, and if it isn't as high as you want, start THAT SAME game over and over and keep scratching until you get a high one. At least then you start out with a high bonus score.
If that makes sense

You're welcome. I see you found your badge. If you look on the Challenge tab in Payday Free Cell, you will see your badge under the Mix & Match heading. It will be the second one with the word "Retiring" on it.
As for the Rainy Day Badge, it is a Legendary Badge and you either purchased it or it was a gift from someone.
Good Luck with your Badge.

Thanks for the clue as to where to find it, I will go to the badge place, I did look in Payday free cell and it isn't there, so now I will look in the other suggested place. As far as Rainy Day, I hope that one was free, don't think I bought anything to do with Rainy Day. Again thanks. :)

Your Payday Free Cell Mix & Match badge: "Rookie" is in your Mix & Match Album #3.
You can also find it if you go to Payday Free Cell and look under Challenges.
You also have a Rainy Day Spider Solitaire Mix & Match Badge waiting to be played.

Payday FreeCell • Re: Peeking at hidden card suits

By jeanie5815 » April 16th, 2016, 1:05 pm

Yep. "Who knew".
I was "raised" playing payday. It was our mom's "way" of teaching us 6 kids to "count" forward and backwards.
I didn't know about the "hidden" card tip, til years ago in here. I just "use" it to find my A's and someone "then" in game told me, "All nos. can be found by using the appropriate no. key on keyboard." This tip has "improved" my game 100%.
So it "proves" that "old dogs/cats" can be "taught" new tricks. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :D :D :D :D :D

Payday FreeCell • Re: FULL SCREEN (Merged Thread)

By Java_Stop » April 9th, 2016, 5:11 pm

Hi there Pogo - any idea when you will enlarge Payday Free Cell? This game is part of the tournaments and I find it very difficult to play. Most of the other games have been updated so they can be played in full screen. Going to try the tip regarding zooming up to 125 and see if that helps my old eyes out. May 1/16 - I see many posts regarding this but no answers from Pogo. Hey Pogo how about answering some of these questions? :D

Well, you can learn something new every day in the forums. I was really glad to see this little tip! This is not one of my favorite games and just as with any you need to practice to get better. When there's a challenge or a badge going on I always feel like I'm just getting better at it when I reach the finish of what I am playing for. Any little help is appreciated. Actually, this would be a wonderful tip for Pogo to have on at the beginning of loading the game.
Happy Gaming! :D

It's not a trick, but it is a useful feature of the game.
Clicking the space bar while pointing your cursor over the card will reveal the hidden suit.

Payday FreeCell • Peeking at hidden card suits

By MaggieEmm2 » April 4th, 2016, 9:11 pm

I have been playing Payday FreeCell for a long time, with great success. Only today, I realized that hidden cards can be exposed so you don't have to waste moves to find out the suit of a hidden card. Now I see the "trick" to win consistently in the 80-moves range.
Who knew?!?!
:D :D :D :D
